For a while now you may have been wondering when exactly Sony will launch their latest handheld console, the PS Vita, yesterday Sony cleared this up via a blog post, revealing the Vita to be launched on the 22nd of February available across the US, Canada, Latin America and Europe.
The blog post which was written by Jack Tretton, the President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America, revealed the release date for the Vita as well as some information about games due to be released alongside the device:
“…more than 100 games currently in development globally that span many different genres, including Sound Shapes, Resistance: Burning Skies, Uncharted Golden Abyss, Capcom’s Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed, EA Sports’ FIFA, Activision’s Call of Duty, and numerous others that you’ll hear about in the months ahead.”
Alongside this Jack also added a little information, over what to expect from the new device, and what features it includes:
“With its vibrant 5-inch OLED screen, dual analog sticks, dual cameras, and front and rear touch panel, PS Vita will deliver rich, immersive games with stunning graphics, which simply can’t be found anywhere else. Now you’ll be able to play shooters and action titles on-the-go with controls that are familiar, and you won’t have to block out the gorgeous screen to interact with the games.”
Unfortunately this means a late Christmas present for those of you who don’t live in Japan, who will be recieving the new console on the 17th of December 2011. What does this mean for you? Are you still going to hold out for the Vita? Or just pic up something else?
